? The rear arms will probably have stronger kombi stub axles in them so you may need to get them converted to 930cv ( easy ) which I think you are running from memory.

as for the rear arms in combination with a thing front end conversion this will work well as the longer rear arms will allow more travel and allow you to have correct suspension movement even with the buggy sitting higher.

with a thing front end and stock beetle arms you need to notch your spring plates to increase travel but to get your buggy to sit level your rear suspension is generally in full extension....ideally you want your suspension at ride height to have two thirds travel in compression and one third in extension. the longer rear arms will give you this....and is what the purple max fx ( STEVEB's) has ( i posted a pic of it recently in another thread regarding moving a framehead forward.)

if you look at my manx the reason it sits a little lower in the rear end is for the above reason of still having one third in extension ( droop ) Id rather my suspension have this travel then a level floor as looking good isnt as important as correct travel. youll notice if you ever ride in buggy's that are wound all the way up at the back...they can make banging noises when the suspension moves......this comes from the spring plate bottoming out on the torsion housing.....good for jumping as you have loads more travel in compression but the wheels cant move down when going over bumps or potholes etc.....

I also only run kombi cv's as 930cvs weren't as easily to obtain back when i built my manx as a result i dont have enough movement in my cvs to accept ( safely ...) any more travel......thus the reason I tell most guys to go 930's as spending your money twice sucks!!!

having said that stock arms with 930 cvs will still be fine for use with thing front end.....but yes 3x2s are better giving you more travel and lessening drive shaft/cv angle
if in doubt hit it with speed.... just don't hit the cactus!

Cool thanks for that mate. Yeah i think i'd have to get creative with my rear arms as I can't just notch the plates as the trailing arms are millimetres off the manxter's lower cage supports at stock height/full droop. Possibly notch/clearance the trailing arms/ lower cage supports to suit. I'm not really into jumping and such (yet anyway) :twisted: I guess it'll stay stock for a little while. Sorry for the hi-jack maxfx!
